On 13 February, an article from NBC claims that the scale of the fraud in the unemployment program created by the CARES Act has reached a staggering level, according to state and federal officials. It is estimated at least $63 billion of the $630 billion in disbursements has been misspent. The full scope of the loss in taxpayer funds is likely many times higher, experts and officials say, soaring well beyond $100 billion. The DoJ has assembled a task force to root out fraud across all 50 states and US territories. Among the claims is that criminals are using computer-generated 3-D printed masks of victims’ faces to pass identity verification checks, and organised crime, such as a Nigerian cybercrime ring that specialises in online scams, targeting CARES Act unemployment insurance.
